The fourth Thailand Yacht Show & RendezVous opened its doors today for yachting enthusiasts and lifestyle-seekers from around the region.

Boasting a line-up of leading international yacht brands and brokers, charter agencies, luxury property developers, bespoke travel organisers and leading names in the hospitality and food and beverage industries, the Thailand Yacht Show & RendezVous is open to the public until January 13 from 2pm to 10pm daily (closing at 7pm on Sunday 13).

The Show is located at Royal Phuket Marina and entry is free of charge.

Opening the proceedings, Mr Apichart Chirabandhu, Advisor to the Minister of Tourism and Sport, said:

“The Tourism Authority of Thailand and the Ministry of Tourism & Sports are delighted to continue to support the Thailand Yacht Show, to show our commitment to create new opportunities that will boost Phuket’s and Thailand’s economies.

“By growing the marine tourism industry, we will attract quality visitors and high-end leisure tourists with significant purchasing power.”

The Governor of Phuket, Phakaphong Tavipatana, continued:

“With the energy and enthusiasm of the organisers who work on this project throughout the year, and the appetite of our government and our people to welcome foreign yacht owners to our beautiful cruising waters, amazing landscapes, and world-renowned hospitality.”

Andy Treadwell, CEO of show organisers, Verventia, commented:

“This is a fantastic turnout of exhibitors, with almost 150 companies represented, justifying Thailand’s government’s continuing support for the show and the industry.

“There are 40 yachts being showcased by some of the best known brands from around the world, as well as a wide range of luxury products and services in the completely sold-out Exhibition Hall.

“At our Superyacht Hub at next-door private island, Koh Rang Noi, visiting superyachts like the 73m M/Y Titania are also available for viewing by interested charterers and buyers.”

Visitors can enjoy the latest watersport toys, gadgets and equipment with live displays at the show’s interactive Demonstration Platform in the marina and also join in many of the activities along the Boardwalk and in the exhibition hall.

Activities include sommelier wine tastings, elephant painting by Elephant Parade and photo workshops by Nikon, as well as a Classic Car display in Royal Phuket Marina’s iconic Town Square.

The Boardwalk comes alive each evening with live music and sunset sessions from the show’s resident DJ, while the legendary dock parties are the place to be and be seen rubbing shoulders with the glitterati.

Andy Treadwell said there’s something for everyone at this year’s show.

“And, as part of a special promotion with Airline partners GoAir, visitors to the show can get a 50% discount on return flights to India – visit the Taj Mahal, the Red Fort or the Lake Palace of Udaipur for only a fraction of the normal cost!”
